Physician engagement is crucial to driving better processes, improving patient care, and improving the patient experience. Our ownership model at ECP drives a culture of engagement that is led by physicians with an acute understanding of both emergency medicine and business strategy.
The private practice mindset allows physicians to share the same goal as their hospital partners, to deliver timely-high quality patient care. Most hospital admissions present through the Emergency Department, and the ED has been nicknamed the “front door of the hospital.” Having a group of ED providers who are equally as interested in the hospital’s well-being guarantees that this vital patient population receives timely-high quality care that will lead them to choose the same facility time and time again for their care and the care of their families.
Best in Class Patient Care
Continuity is critical to driving better patient outcomes and improved quality. Our physicians understand that quality, safety, and highly reliable performance, yields excellent operational results and patient outcomes.
We strive to make all our facilities the “Hospital of Choice” for their community. Our partnership model enables us to recruit the right providers that are fully engaged in the success of the hospital and will work hand in hand with facility administration to create goals that improve patient satisfaction as well as the hospital’s CMS grades. Our private practice groups eliminate the “middle-man” of large contract management groups. Our primary concern is our patients. Our goal is to use our industry knowledge and expertise to align the efforts of both our hospital partners and our physician partners to create efficiently functioning emergency departments with happy providers and satisfied patients.
Invested in the Community
By developing a strong local group dedicated to the community in which they reside, we facilitate an environment where the clinicians are part of the fabric of the hospital and its goals. Our teams remain focused on supporting the personal and professional needs of our clinicians and the patients they serve, while encouraging clinicians to remain engaged within their local communities. We believe an optimal emergency department structure is comprised of a strong regional presence of engaged physicians who have three things: autonomous local clinical control, physician partnership and equity, and access to national business resources
Our physician leaders are members of the communities they serve and focused on the achieving the goal of efficiently delivering quality patient care to their communities.
Local Leadership / Local Control
We will create a group entity dedicated specifically to your hospital. Our goal is to build a group for your facility where the physicians embody your hospital’s vision and purpose. Your dedicated physician group will have local ownership and “skin in the game” creating alignment with your hospital performance expectations on clinical KPIs. Driven by our belief that “medicine is local,” this group will be able to serve your patients with clinicians who are committed to your community and who are motivated to build a long-term partnership with your hospital. This model drives alignment and attracts clinicians that value continuity and quality of care.
Large contract management groups simply lack to ability to remain nimble and to inspire the commitment necessary to create a long-lasting and stable group of providers. By providing straightforward, forthright and honest partnership for the ED providers, along with experienced leadership, ECP can provide your hospital or health system a dedicated and agile team with the flexibility to adapt and change as your hospital and community continue to grow.
